This is a little belated, but I’ve decided to do check-in posts every quarter, where I discuss my reading stats of that quarter and my top 5 reads. This will culminate in a Top 20 of 2020 post at the end of the year!
From January 1st until March 31st, I’ve read a total of 90 books, so 30 every month. Out of those books 58 have been LGBTQ+, and 31 have been by authors of colour. I’m happy with the amount of LGBTQ+ books I’ve read, but I do want to make even more of an effort to read authors of colour.
A fun stat is that out of all those 90 books, only 2 books have been 1 star reads, and only 2 books have been 2 star reads. This means I’ve enjoyed the vast majority of the books I’ve read. I feel like I keep learning my own reading tastes better every year, and this is nice proof of that.
Top 5 reads
My favourite reads of the year so far are:
1. TJ Klune – The House in the Cerulean Sea
2. Cassandra Clare – Chain of Gold
3. A.M. Strickland – Beyond the Black Door
4. Taylor Brooke – Fortitude Smashed
5. Sarah Kapit – Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen!
